first segment about martha washington, you saw martha as the person who protected the aspect of the role, which was the social partner to the president, and hostess for the nation. then when you get to abigail, she becomes a political partner with her husband and pioneers that role. dolley is the one that brings the two of them together. she becomes the social and political partner for her husband. i think that sets all kinds of precedents for the future first lady. she is kind of, still, held up as a standard by which people measure themselves today. >> we will spend the first 35 minutes on those important white house years. it was such an interesting time for the country and we want to make sure you understand the history of it. later on we will go back in time and learn about her biography, how this young quaker woman became an internationally known first lady and we will end up with her legacy. that's what tonight looks like. we welcome your participation. throughout the program, we will have phone lines open. you can send us a tweet and use #firstladies. and we have a c-span page on

arrived in martha's vineyard for a vacation off of the up scale island of massachusetts. they flew there from florida and the president and mrs. obama spoke at a national convention for disabled veterans. the president's family begins time off after relentless pressure of al qaeda in southern yesmen and aimed at disrupting a threat on the arabian peninsula. a drone strike there the eighth in two weeks killed two more suspected al qaeda militants. the good news is that the al qaeda threat that forced us to close 19 of the embassies and consulates overseas never materialized, but the bad news is that it was serious enough for us to seem to run scared and shutting our doors and evacuating some of the people through the muslim world. what does congressman peter king think? let's ask the former chairman of the house homeland security committee. congressman, was it an overreaction? >> well, it is not an overreaction, and i support what the president did in the limited time frame, because once we saw the enormity of the potential attack as it would have been difficult to defend a number o

, the casting call is already out. while the president vacations in martha's vineyard, the white house continues to fend off criticism from within his own party from one potential nominee of the chair of the federal reserve. larry summers. or the man described by one former colleague as someone you sometimes feel like smacking. after a capitol hill meeting in which he scolded congressional democrats for their criticism of summers, last week president obama continued his not really promotional larry summers promotional campaign. >> i think the perception that mr. summers might have an inside track simply had to do with attacks that i was hearing on mr. summers preemptively which is sort of a standard washington exercise that i don't like. >> but even after some scolding from the white house, senate majority leader harry reid remained highly skeptical of summerers as fed chief, saying ultimately it will be so divisive within the caucus it may not be worth it. further complicating summers' chances is a new bloomberg poll of economists that find a majority believe that janet yellin, not larry summer
